Afam, who spoke to journalists on Wednesday at Asaba, Delta State capital, said, “APGA is the third-largest political party in Nigeria with political office holders in many parts of the country.”
He said the party can presently boast of the likes of Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, former Minister of Information, Frank Nweke (Jnr) and many others both in the national and state assemblies. The Trumpet Gathered
